D. James Greiner & Molly M. Jennings, The Evolution of Unbundling in Litigation Matters: Three Case Studies and a Literature Review, 89 Denv. U. L. Rev. 825 (2012).
Abstract: We discuss the concept of "unbundled" representation in litigation matters, in which a client retains a lawyer to provide legal services short of those that would be provided in a traditional attorney client relationship. Specifically, we trace the evolution of the process of mainstreaming unbundled representation in three case study states: Colorado, Massachusetts, and Alabama. We conclude by providing a comprehensive bibliography of academic and some other writings on the subject of unbundled representation.
